Should the Pledge of Alegence be allowed in public schools?
Debate Rounds (2)
I think that the pledge of allegiance is a violation of church and state. in the pledge of allegiance it references god. It says, "one nation under God." For example Atheists have a religion that does not believe in God. Do we really want our kids growing up, and being peer pressured into saying the pledge of allegiance just like all of their friends, even though their parents may not want them growing up believing that there is a God? Thank you.
If you are right and God is not being presented as a religious figure then why not say, "One nation under everything good and helpful." Why instead does it say, "One nation under God," doesn't that give people the wrong idea?
My opponent said, "What people need to realize is that the pledge of allegiance was made a certain way for specific reasons." But if this is true than why have God's name in the Pledge of Allegiance?
